Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Clutch

Author(s): Will Jackson
Company: Bush Theatre

"I’ve been doing this for over twenty years and I’ve never had a student not pass first time. Tyler, do you trust me?"

Max is a retired cabbie who now prides himself on being the best driving instructor in Birmingham. Tyler is desperate to escape his suffocating hometown and start a new life in the big city.

As Tyler gets to grips with clutch control and the highway code, he and Max find themselves navigating the challenges of manhood and personal regrets. Within the confines of a Vauxhall Corsa, the pair strike up an unlikely friendship they both needed more than they ever knew.

This heart-warming story of acceptance is a new Bush Theatre commission written by Will Jackson (Yours Sincerely, Soho Theatre & UK tour).
